We are to serve God faithfully with all our hearts in every area of our lives. ~~~ Serve God This God we hear about, this God we fear, His word is meant to be lived out. You will notice that it says in 1 Samuel 12:24 to serve him faithfully with all of your heart. When we hear this, we often think that it means with all of our energy, or with everything we have. And it does to an extent. But it also means that every area of our life is to be his. There is not to be a sacred and secular divide. Every part of your life is religious. Every part of your life is worship. The reason this is so is because the earth is the LORD’s and the fullness thereof. Every nail you drive into a piece of wood, the nail and the wood, and the hammer belong to God. When you mow your grass, you are actually mowing God’s grass. When you mix asphalt, it belongs to God. When you pave roads, cut hair, handle money, paint buildings, raise children, teach subjects, they all belong to God! And we are to serve Him faithfully with all of our heart in every area, as he instructs us.
